A dashing young British pilot is shot down by one of the Luftwaffe’s formidable Messerschmitt Bf109s while in combat over Greece during World War II. He finds himself in the grounds of a monastery, high up on the Meteora in Thessaly.
The strict Orthodox Sisters, whose lives were centred on prayer and meditation, find themselves in a quandary, having this wounded airman among them.
Life in the monastery is further disrupted by the arrival of twelve Jewish children, requiring refuge from the relentless pursuit of Hitler’s Wehrmacht soldiers.
The story unfolds with their ingenious methods of survival as they desperately try to protect all they hold dear.
Loyalty, love and devotion are severely challenged against the backdrop of the horrors and tragedies of war-torn Greece.
